As part of our Harvest Festival Celebrations, Year 3 have been learning about the Jewish Harvest Festival of Succot. During this festival, it is customary for Jewish people to eat, sleep and relax in their own ‘Succah’ which is a temporary hut built in their gardens. Year 3 have made their own versions of a Succah to share with everyone at the Junior Harvest Festival celebration on Tuesday 2 October. Here are some rules of how to build a Succah by Year 3:
- It must only have a maximum of three and a half walls.
- The roof must be made of leaves and branches so you can see the sky.
- You must eat in the Succah even if it is raining!
- The festival lasts for eight days.
